Hike to the alpine pastures on the Monte Cervina

Hiking at the foot of the highest mountain of the Val Sarentino Alps, the Monte Cervina, also called Hirzer in German.

From Saltusio at the beginning of Val Passiria, we take the Monte Cervina funicular up to the mountain station Bergflur Klammeben (tavern at 1,980 m a.s.l.). First of all we take the path no. 8A in order to reach the trail no. 40, leading us down to Monte Cervina refuge (1,986 m a.s.l.) and the Tallner Alm alpine pasture (2,022 m a.s.l.). From this point we follow the rather plain trail marked 2B until we reach the Hintereggalm and Mahdalm, past Lake Rotmoos.

This is also where we start our way back, following path no. 4 to the "Gompm Alm" at 1,806 m a.s.l. After a short break we return to Monte Cervina refuge via path no. 5B and the European Long Distance Walking Trail.

If you want to do this hike, please take information about the weather and the current conditions of the trail on site!
